    One trouble with “thinkers” of the Collective is their basic inability to read.

    At least outside their echo chamber.

    Yeah. Kinda odd that Pres. ScamWOW seems to be cool with this repression.

    And our press is largely silent here.

    Or perhaps not…

    “We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Kerry told the audience gathered at a U.S. Embassy-run American Center in a Jakarta shopping mall. “Nor should we allow any room for those who think that the costs associated with doing the right thing outweigh the benefits.”

    11:41 AM, Feb 16, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER

    Secretary of State John Kerry said today in Indonesia that climate change is “the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction.”

    “In a sense, climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even, the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction,” said Kerry, according to the Associated Press.

    You know, it is bad enough being demagogued.

    But having it done by an idiot is just beyond the pale.

    We all regret foolish people voting for Pres. ScamWOW.

    Including a lot of the foolish voters.

    Well, except for the truly moronic.

    Sorry, our President is an idiot as pertains to anything practical.

    There is no way fleet trucks increased mileage by 75%, all things being equal (i.e. fleet speeds over routes, etc.)

    Truckers fight and upgrade for 3 or 4% increases in mileage.

    Which, despite She’s-bilious lying to the contrary, you’d have to know if you were not dead.
